who we are
greenspace scotland is social enterprise and an independent charitable company. We work with a wide range of national and local partners to improve the quality of life of people living and working in urban Scotland through the planning, development and sustainable management of greenspaces as a key part of the green infrastructure of our towns and cities. Our goal is that everyone living and working in urban Scotland has easy access to quality greenspaces that meet local needs and improve their quality of life. Find details here about our board, staff and associates.
what we do
Our projects, programmes and services are about transforming urban places into people places. Our holistic approach recognises that greenspace is a ‘vehicle’ for delivering a wide range of quality of life and quality of place outcomes. We provide a range of services and projects through two overarching programmes: demonstrating success and supporting delivery. Follow the ‘our services’ and ‘our projects’ tabs for more detailed information about specific projects and services.
